I tied poor Alice around my toe.

My twine is dead now...gees Louise!

Flippin' eck' Churchy! That's a crackin' piece of word-play! I'm all of a dither after reading that. Good stuff is that, bloody good stuff. A championship contender no doubt!

Best Answer

The words just tumbled out of two minutes flat.

Best Answer

Best answer goes to our Churchy for a sublime bit o' verse, nice one Churchy. There was some that came so close that, if I could, I would give a VERY close joint second to Coubert's poem and FistofLove's word's. Both were bleedin' fantastic! And a special mention goes to Vessa's second poem (A verse within a box). The elegance of it totally blew me away! I must have read it over and over at least six times, it was awesome! You were all far, FAR better poets than I ever could be, cheers!

Looking back,

Feel that pain,

Get back up,

That was very random but I liked it. lol :)

Best Answer

Because of how short it had to be, I didn't want to think to hard about it. Plus it's pretty much what my situation is right now, minus the "Get Back Up" part.

Needing the feel of something new

Veracity veiled by the morning's dew

Days reflecting many shades of blue

Repressed emotions slowly brew

Solitude nights reveal the truth

I'm haunted by memories of me and you...

As the dove, flies above,

I feel yet, more in love,

As the tears, flow down my face

I remember, you're locked in space.

I'll see you, in a few

here's a gun, 3,2.................1

Best Answer

This is an incredible poem to come up with at your age. Did you really write this? Honest now?

Best Answer

Yes (swear on my life), even funnier, I've never been someone's partner in a love life. I won first place in a poetry contest last year for a poem called "The Sound of Love" I base it all off books I've read... and I'm a bookworm.

Best Answer

I can make a rhyme

To satisfy a request.

Or because someone

Says I should try to get "best".

But there's more to a poem

Than would come on demand.

There's more to that art

Than will heed a command.

Best Answer

Very true, very true. You're obviously very good at this kind of thing. But some people have managed to stay within the rules and managed to produce some shockingly good verse. :)

Best Answer

A verse within a box,
A verse that isn't free,
Will rail against the locks
And sorrow for the key.

Best Answer

Bloody 'ell, You really are the mutts nuts at this Vessa. It sounds so effortless to you as well.

Best Answer

Tighter than your fist,

Your heart won't let you out.

Love it open, little one.

The world longs for

The song in you.

That has quite a little profound element to it. You're all just so flippin' good. It's a pleasure to read all this stuff, it really is, thank you. :)

Best Answer

I don't have a poem to add...I just wanted to give credit where credit is due...there are so many fine, talented wordsmiths on EP....amazing!!! I loved reading all of them...I can't fathom how you managed to choose a 'Best'

I am not poet for competition.I am poet of heart.I can write if you want to smile:)

Best Answer

The perfect example of ad-lib poetry on demand was the mighty Cassius Clay when asked to come up with as short a poem, about himself, as possible. He just pointed at himself and said "Me Qoi" (or whatever the word for yes in French is, but you get the point). Genius!
